Take care and goodnight!

About 2 something in the morning today, I was awoken to a goat screaming below in the stalls like something was seriously wrong. Me and Mom ran down here, plugged the light in, and one of the goats that had banded horns was standing there yelling. We soon realized that she had knocked her horn completely off. The horn was on the ground with a little blood, but she was barely bleeding. There was a little blood on her head so we put some blood stop powder on it and went back to bed. She also went back to sleep, thankfully! Today she seems just fine, just she's now a unicorn!
It's only been 17 days since we banded them - that is very fast for one to fall off already! The soonest I read that they would fall off would be 21 days, but hey, sooner is fine with me!
It was very cold this morning... 16 degrees or something like that, and all the water buckets were solid frozen.
Rosie, our first doe due, is on day 144 today - babies soon to come, Lord willing!
Well, some of my family will be leaving in a few days and gone till next year - wait, that's only a few days away :). I've gotta cook and plan a few things during the next few days for our New Year's Eve party on Friday night!
Have a great day!
